HILLSIDE, NJ – July 5, 2012 -
NECA/WizKids, the leader in collectible gaming, is excited to
announce their partnership with the Valve Corporation to develop
and launch their new line of Portal 2 Sentry Turret Collectible
Figures. In Portal 2, the Sentry Turrets are objects to avoid
or destroy while maneuvering through the mind-bending puzzles
presented at each level in the game— but you will want to
collect all of these Portal 2 Sentry Turret Collectible Figures to
stand guard over your work space and prized possessions!
The Portal 2 Sentry Turret Collectible Figures stand 3” in
height and will feature both Open and Closed versions of 10 unique
design patterns including camouflage patterns, animal prints and
even a Hot Rod-motif.
As part of the announcement for the release of the set,
NECA/WizKids Games and Valve are offering Portal 2 fans the
opportunity to vote on one of four design patterns— the
winning design will be released as part of the set. The four
nominated design patterns are a Lightning-motif turret, a turret
with a “Mom” tattoo, a Hawaiian Shirt pattern and a
Wood Grain pattern. Please visit Valve Software’s
Facebook page at
www.facebook.com/portal to vote for your favorite
design pattern. The winner of the “Fan Vote” will
be announced on Valve Software’s Facebook page.
